#### Quantum Information Math RIT Seminar

The goal of this talk is to go over some of the intuition that lies behind quantum cryptography protocols. We will begin by addressing the advantages that quantum cryptography protocols have over classical cryptography as well as the difference between quantum and post-quantum cryptography. We will then highlight one of the advantages that quantum cryptography has, no-cloning, and discuss why it allows us to construct primitives that are impossible in the classical setting (such as position verification and unclonable encryption). A main goal of the talk is to demystify some of the vocabulary and concepts often used in this field, so questions are very much encouraged!

This is a Quantum Information Math RIT Seminar which is part of the larger MathQuantum RTG program at UMD.
